For the first time since iho completion 
of the new Tod Inlet plant of the B. 
C. Electric Company at Brentwood bay, 
steam was yesterday turned on at the 
plant. Of a capacity of 6,000 horse- 
power the new plant will, for the bal- 
ance of the year, be used merely as an 
auxiliary to the Jordan River plant 
which is now supplying the city tram- 
way, lighting and power services but 
when the Saanich tramway extension is 
in operation the plant will be run con- 
tinually to augment the power from the 
company's .Tordan river system. 

The new Brentwood bay plant Is op- 
erated by steam. It has cost the com- 
pany in the neighborhood of ?400,000 to 
install and will prove a great addition 
10 the already magnificent system of 
power production jiossed by the com- 

Jordan River Improvements 

Tho second unit of 6,000 horse-power 
recently Installed at tho Jordan river 
plant Is now In operation making a to- 
tal of 12,000 horse-power 'avallalile from 
tliat source. 

But with the certainty that the great 
Increase in the demand for power ex- 
perienced during the last year will be 
continued as the city and adjacent dis- 
tricts are developed, the company has 
been making provision for tlie further 
IncreHsIng of ►•lie .fordan river system. 
A large band of men Is employed on the 
new dam locate<l at the end of the pres- 
ent flume line, which when completed, 
will have fost In the neighborhood of 
$.S50.000. This dam will be. It Is stated, 
the hlgliest of any worlt of its kind In 
Canada, rising 125 feet above the bod 
of the ravine wliile Its length will be 
about 800 feet. 

When completed tho stornge capacity 
or the system at that point will be 
increased by about (50,000,000 cubic feet, 
and with tho present Bear Creek reser- 
voir, a tot.ll reservoir capacity of about 
90,000.000 cubic feet will he available. 
This Increased supply of water will ful- 
ly provide for the continuous operation 
of the new unit just added and subse- 
quent additions which may be made In 
tlie next few yeaijB. 

Olty Additions 

While the comr>any has been steadily 
adding to its power supply at outlying 
points, extensive Improvements have 
l/een made to tho city system. The 
•Store street steam plant has been com- 
pletely remodelled and added to and 
many tliniisands spent on the new plant. 
The l>ulldln< at the prf><ent time is ab- 
Sf>lutp|y tire proof. Ah the central point 
of distribution of power from .Tordan 
river and Tod Inlet the sub-station has 
been no enlarjred as to make It capable 
of eoplufj with fut.ire d.-mands though 
early next yeiir work on the ecectlon of 
another sub-station In another part of 
the city will commence. 

The cost of bringing the Store street 
station up to requirements has been ap- 
proximately 1126,000, new steam ma- 
chinery and electrical installations call- 
ing for the expenditure of the greater 
portion of this amount. 

Haw S«1i-Sta^l9a 

The new sub-sfatjon. the site of which 
has not yet been decide 1 upon, will 
probably b« located somewhere In the

'" lal companies of tho right to 
tain an action at law in the pro- 
vincial courts, was the deciding ele- 
ment in an interesting case Just dis- 
missed by the court of appeal. The 
suit was that of the Koninlck Machin- 
ery Company, a United .States concern, 
against the British Columbia Pressed 
Brick Company. 

An unusual feature of the case is 
that the company took out a provin- 
cial llcerice before bringing suit, but, 
in the opinion of a majority of the 
judges in the appeal court,' this did 
not suffice to give the company retro- 
active rights at law, section IBS of the 
Companies Act not then being In ex- 
istence. Chief Justice Macdonald 
rendered a dissenting judgment on 
this point, but his judgment stood 
alone. Messrs. MacNelll, Bird and 
-Macdonald. who conducted the case 
for the Komnlck Machinery Company, 
are considering an appeal to the privy 
council. The case for the defendants 
was conducted tn b'ith courts by .Mr. 
E. P. Davis, K. C. 

At the trial a defence on tho nierlts 
was set ivp nn wall as th* technical 
defence on the Cmnpanies Act, it In - 
ing alleged that the machlner.v sup- 
[illed (lid not rend(?r the guaranteed 
output stiiiulaied for. At the trial the 
learned Judge gave judgment for the 
defendants on the merits. At the ap- 
peal the Judges held that the machin- 
ery had reasonably filled the condi- 
tions of the contract. Mr. Justice

ing that on the merits he would f.tvor

Provision for Education of Men 
for Church of England Min- 
istry in This Province Found 
in St, Mark's, Vancouver 



VANCOUVER. B. C, Nov. 7. — That the 
Church of Kngland needs highly edu- 
.■^ated men for its ministry was em- 
phasized In all the addresses at the 
opening of St. Mark's hall of the Angli- 
can Theologlcnl College lust night in St. 
Paul's church. 

In opening Mr. H. B. Hubcrtson, of 
Victoria, the chairman of tlie fvenlng. 
said that the Idea of St. Mark's \itf.ll was 
province- wide in its scope aiil|' that It 
might look for the very stroilgost sup- 
port from Vancouver Island. "The time 
lias gone when an uneducated man can 
preach to an educated ctmgregatlon. 
The province needs men badly, hut the.y 
must be educated very highly," he snid. 
Mr. Robertson stated In conclusion that 
he was sure that tliere was a great fu- 
ture before the college. 

Hev. Principal Seager of St. Mark's 
hall, gave a detailed report on whn t has 
been done, and Bishop T")u I'encier fol- 
Ir.weil along the .«amo lines. 

Very Hev. Dean fioull. Victoria, gave 
.several reiiHuns wtiy the province was 
glad to welcome .St. Mark's hall, which 
uould not only benefit Vancouver but 
the entire province. The reasons, he 
etntfd, why they rejoiced In the found- 
ing of Ht. Mark's was that they felt the 
gii'at ne<d for men for the ministry 
and that they must have an Institute 
for training these men In order for them 
to carry on fh? work, said lie. 

"The nee<l grows greater every 
for educated men In tho church, 
merly any one gave Information 
the Bible, according to his own 
sonal view, but now men must be able to 
prove that the words of tlie Gospel are 
the words tjf Ood. Men and women re- 
quire to be flUed with the Holy .Spirit 
and thtu can only be acconiplUhc.l by

OTTAWA, Nov. ".—-Whatever tho out- 
come of the strike of the B. R. 13. along 
the C. P. n. system, Hon. T. W. Crothers 
minister of labor, will not recede from 
the r>oslt!on which he now takes. The 
minister of labor emphasized the point 
that a board had been refused because 
the act did not apply to the conditions 
attached to the claims involved In the 

He maintains that to have appointed 
a conciliation board wliild be to defeat 
the very ends which the men and the 
department are seeking to attain. 

"I have had negotiations with the C. 
P. K." he said, "for months In an effort 
to secure better term's and conditions 
for the men. The company met me In 
a sympathetic way and has already 
given m.Tterial increases to some of tlie

wishes as far as possible. 

In view of these facts 1 considered 
It would be a wrong jirlnciplc alone, if 
iiotlilng else, to have Ignored the ad- 
vances being made by the company and 
appointed a board to deal with the mat-

the company refusing .to grant the in- 
creases and terms that they wore al- 
ready considering favorably and the men

That Illinois was safely In the Wil- 
son column was Indicated early in" the 
evening, but California, which had been 
claimed by tlie Democrats shortly .after 
tlie closing of the polls, wavered for a 
Khori time toward the Progressive 
ranks. The Wilson plurality, however, 
early in the evening again started up- 
ward as returns came in from remote 
precincts which are usually Democratic, 
and tho Wilson lead seemed safe. 

After apparently holding Illinois for 
nearly 40 hours from the time the polls 
closed, Mr. Roosevelt lost Its 2!> elec- 
toral votes late in the day, when the 
assemblage of state-wide returns showed 
a victory for Governor Wilson.

Illinois for governor by a phirality rif

On the strength of Incomplete returns 
as to the popular vote for Wilson, 
Roosevelt and Taft, the estimate . was 
made 'onlght that Governor Wilson 
would not have a majority of all the 
votes cast. 

in many slates the popular vote has

Northern steamer Royal George still 
rests flrmly on the rocks one mile oast 
of Point St. Lawrence, on the north side 
of the south channel, with live hundred 
steerage passengers and the members of 
the crew on board. Company officials 
were firmly convinced that the pa-^scng-

the steerage today and taken to Quebec, 
but the elements in-lerfered with their 
plans, conBequentl.v the people have to re- 
main with the ship at least until to- 
morrow, when they will be brought to 

The condition of thetsteamer is prac- 
tically the same as when she got off 
hej course and was carried at full speed 
on the rocks, head on, and though her 
position is serious experts have every 
conrtdence that she can btr hauled off, 
but not before she is lightened, with the 
aid of the highest spring tide, which 
will occur next Saturday. 

Her number two hold Is full of water,

between her two funnels *o firmly that

Self-imposed Armistice 
So far as-ean— bw ^ewmet^ here, there 
lias been very little (.hange in the mil- 
itary situation in ihe past twenty-four 
hours. A sort of self-imposed armis- 
tice obtains on the Thrace.-in plains. 
Both sides appear to require time to 
rest and re-organize after their recent 
exhaustive efforts. Further heavy 
rains have transformed the plains Into 
a morass. The officials say that prob- 
ably a week will elapse before hostil- 
ities are resumed along the Tchatalja 
lines which battle is ex(>ected to decide 
the campaign, unless peace comes to 
spare the belli.gercnts further carnage.

London Against Australians 


BaUways at Ziast Agree 

TOnONTO, Nov. 7.— The bitterly con- 
tested battle of the Union station has 
been settled after eight years of con- 
stant warfare. The Canadian Pacific 
ralh\ay and tho Grand Trunk railway 
have agreed to drop their differences 
nnd to form a terminal station similar 
to the present vinlon .station, on the 
Front street site, between Youngo and 
B'ly streets, without further delay. The 
railways have likewise agreed to fight 
the construction of the Esplanade via- 
duct to the last ditch. 

LONDON,, Nov. S. — During yesterday's i 
sitting of the Dominion's royal commis-; 
.slon a member of the Manchester i 
Chamber of Commerce stated that Aus-«^ 
lialian wheat was by far the best in i 
the world. Hon. G. E. Foster, Immedl-j 
ntely pounced upon the speaker f or j 
proofs of his remarks. 

"How can you expect a Canadian to 
sit down and listen to such a state- 
ment unless you give us some proofs? j 
You know," ho added, "we have bolster- f 
ed ourselves up in Canada with the. idea' 
that our Number One Manitoba wheat' 
is the best wheat on earth. Perhaps 
you will modify your statement to th« 
effect that the Australian wheat is Just 
as good."

"49 Years of Integrity 





(nntiniird from Pnit** 1. 
by the full court o', British Columbia 
(13 B. (.'.. 297), is on all foura with 
the present case, with these excep- 
tions: That the plaintiffs In the case 
at bar had taken out a licence (Sep- 
tember 13, 1909) before bringing ac- 
tion, and that section lfi6 of the i.'om- 
panies .\ot, 1910. upon which the de- 
fendant relied, was not In existence. 

•'Unles.s the act of 1910 as.slsts the 
r>!aintlffs, and If Northwestern vs. 
Young, supra,- was rightly decided, 
they must fail. 1 think the decision 
In that case is fully Justlfletl b.\- the 
authorities there cited, and we have 
then oxvb to deal with section 1(56 oT 
1910. At the tlmo the plalntlff.s took 
out their licence and commenced their 
action, the .statute law of 1S97 was in 
force. The trial took place after the 
c<imins into force of the act of 1910. 

••Section 23 of 1897 prohibits carry- 
ing on biislne,?is in i}rltl.'<h Columbia 
b>- an extra provincial company until 
certain fonnallties are compiled with, 
and a penalty foV infract ion 
thereof, but i.i silent as to the righl.6 
of partle.s to miilntaln an action. This 
was the law a.s it .stood at the time 
tho plaintiffs brought their uctlon. 

"Ha.H the act of 1910 made any dif- 
ference a.s between the parlies there- 
to? Unless It is retroactive, or i.s 
deemed to be an interpretation of the 
Intention of the legislature as to 
what the rights as between parties to 
such a contract a.s the present then 
were, it is not applicable. 1 do not 
Rce how the canon.s of construction 
can be applied hei-e to make It retro- 
active, and when we consider that the 
act of 1S97 is silent as to the rights as 
between parties, what is provided for 
by the act of 1910 can not, as 1 view 
it, be regarded as expressing any in- 
tention of the legl.'ilature in 1S97, but 
is dealing with the matter for the first 
time as a provision for the grantln.? 
of a remedy as between parties on 
complying with certain conditions, 
and speaks onl\- from the time of the 
coming into force of the act. 

"1 am, if T may say so with regret, 
forced to the cpnclnslon that the a|)- 
peal must be dismissed."

these figures. In 1908, out of a com-

Cablnet-Makara Bnaj 

WASHINGTO-V, Nov. 7.— Cabinet- 
makers .'ire already busy conjecturing 
what men \y\\\ share with Woodrow 
Wilson In shaping the policy of the 
next administration. Nccessarllj- all 
Is \et pure guess work, but the cabinet 
builders are none the less a<'tlve In 
pointing out the persons and the ele- 
ments ,-ivaIlabIe as cabinet material. 

One of the available elements em- 
braces those who were consplcuou.s 
party figure.s at the Baltimore con- 
vention. Including Speaker Clark, Os- 
car W. Underwood, \\'iUiani J. Bryan, 
("Jovernor Foss, of Massachusetts; 
(Jovernor Hartnon, of Ohio, and some 
others. It is generally assumed, how- 
ever, that Speaker Clark and ^.'halr- 
man Underwood would prefer to con- 
tinue their work in congress, especial- 
ly now that the legislative programme 
on the tariff and other' (luCstlons Is 
llkeJy to meet with fewer obstacles. 

As to Mr. Bryan, one of the Demo- 
crat senators was quoted during tlie 
campaign as definitely assigning .Mr. 
Bryan to a cabinet place in case of 
Mr. Wilson's election, although the 
latter stated about the same time that 
no consideration had been given to 
the p^jrsonnel of the cabinet. None 
the less, sjieculatlon Is active as to 
uheiher the .Ncbraskan wil! have a 

Those who ha.\e lieen prominently 
Identified with the Wilson campaign 
are also mentioned, notably Chairman 
McComlis, of the Democratic national 
committee; Representatives l.aiirelson 
and Henry, of Texas; Representative 
Palmer, of Penns)lvanhi ; Assistant 
Chairman .McAdoo and a number ot 
others who bore the brunt of the con- 
flict at Baltimore during the cam- 
paign. Still another available cle- 
ment is made up of prominent figures 
In the \-arlous states who were not 
consj)lcuousl\- identified with the re- 
cent national con\enti(m atid cam- 
paign, while another includes some of 
the veterans of the la.^Jt Democratic 

Outside of these usual elements 
from which cabinets are constructed, 
many foresee fho entry of a consider- 
able new element in public affairs, 
made up of men like Mr. 'WilBon. who 
have been Id^ntiflod with collegiate, 
educational and economic study of 
public questions. This opens a wide 
field of available material.

■Workmen on Belmont Block in Danirer 

•When Excessive -Weight Break* 


Carelessness on the part of the work- 
mcti employed In erectlnp a flyioK ncaf- 
fold around the new Belmont bullditiK al 
Government and lliimlioldt Btrtits 
nearly resulted in disaster yesterday to 
some of the men working on the scaf- 
fold at a height of about twenty-five 
feet from the sround. 

In putting Into position the braces 
which project over the edjyc of the roof 
and from which are suspended tlie ■wire 
cables tow'hich the Bcaffold; Is at- 
tachod and by which I; is elevated as 
the work of bricklns "P ' ' '> exterior 
walls proceeds, two of the iron braces 
were su placed as to project out over 
the edge of the rounded reinforced con- 
crete projection at tlic corner. 

In bracing these beams to stand the 
welRht of the scaffold beneath, blocks 
were placed beneath each beam. But, In- 
stead of beins so located as to rest upon 
the main pillars at the rear of the pro- 
jection, they were placed at the cxtrcniif 
edKC of the latter, thus throwing the full 
weight upon a portion of the structuri' 
which was not intended to bear uii\- 
heavy weigh L The result was the bend- 
Inp down of the stpel bars reinforcing: 
the concrete, aHowIng the scaffold 1m- 
low to saK down. 

Mr. Ifoult llorlon. tho architect, was 
summoned, and after examlninir tb.' 
break notified the police in order that 
any possible danper to peilostrians in 
the streets beneath miffht bo averted. 
The roadway in llumlioldt .street Was 
ropcil off and traffic on the oast' side 
of Ooverntnent street diverted to the 
opposite side. 

A conslderaliU cr'iwd collected, rum- 
ors spreading that the building was col- 
la pslnsr. An examination made by Mr. 
llorton and Buildlnsr Inspector North- 
cott Indicated that the concrete projec- 
tion must bo removed, the set concrete 
having been cracked clear tlirouKli. 
New rods will have to be put In place 
and a new projection made. 

Prepare now for the wet 
season — 'Tis luinian nature 
to neglect thin|;s until the

Teaching did not merely consist of stand- 
ing before a class and entertaining them. 
It meant the taking of d living Idea out of 
the mind of the teacher and planting It In 
the mind of the pupil. Referring to the 
lack of Biblical knowledge possessed by 
some Sunday school teachers, the speaker 
sala he had once heard a wpmah .teacher! 
tell her class that the ttma that had 
elapsed between tho ascent of our Lord and 
the descent at the Holy Spirit had been 
ten years and she hid proceeded to fill In 
these years with the first fifteen chapters 
of the Acts of thp Apostles. 

Hound Tablp Conference 
Rev. P. J. W^ish, of Kelowna, conducted 
the round table conference on this subject^ 
when an Interesting discussion took place 
as to whether or not the Bible classes were 
helping the Sunday schools as they ought 
to do. 

Itov. Dr. Scott pointed out that while In 
the country the Sunday schools were ham- 
pered by lack of teachers. In the city they 
were hampered by lack of time and Interest, 
Kveryone who had anything to do with 
Sunday schools knew that it was often the 
most unstiltable people who offered their 
services as teachers, while the best people 
hung back through their own natural re- 

It was bard also in some of the city 
churches to find time for the teacher train- 
ing claaes, and, he was of the opinion that 
such classes could be miich better orsranlzed 
than they were at present. 

Mr. Qreen spoke of the selfishness of 
adult Bible classes In not providing teach- 
ers for the Stinday schools. 

Winning of 8ouIh 

The next speaker, who sprang to the de- 
fence of the former organizations, pointed 
out how his own promising class had been 
absolutely depleted to find officers for the 
Sunday school, and said ho thought there 
was a tendency to think more of winning 
the banner than of winning souls for Jesus 

A special study hour In departments fol- 
lowed, among the speakers being Mrs. 
Matthews, who conducted a large meeting, 
speaking on "Tho Junior Age, Its Difficul- 
ties, Needs and Opportunltlcf." 

Rev. W. A. Brown, who took charge of 
the Teen Age, spoke on "The Inlelle.iual 
T>lfe." Rev. C. R. Fisher took charge of 
tl)i> Adult Department. 

i-'acing the Situation 

Rev. G. T. Pratt opened the evening 
session with prayer, after which Rev. W. L,. 
Clay read a portion of Scripture. Rev. Mr. 
I'ratt, who was the first speaker, gave an 
address on the advancement of Sunthiy 
.■school work along three lines. The first, 
ho said, consisted of facing the situation 
nquarely, and finding out wherein lay Its 
faults; the second wns by learning all the 
Ijoat mothodu possible for Its advanuemeiu. 
This could be done by being observnnl of 
other schools, by rending the best litera- 
ture, and by keeping track of all ln.Hplnt- 
tlniial convention.-!. The third lay In seeing 
clearly tho Ihlnj; they desired to accom- 

Rov. Wlllinm A. UroVn. the next speaker, 
spoke on "The Fine Art of Finding Folk-x." 

Rev. Dr. Scott dismissed the gatUerln;,' 
wlfi the benediction. 

At this mornings session Unv. H. F.

lll^pilted Elocutionist Oivea a Charminr 

■ ; jieadlngr of Spanish Drama and 
/.' f '' ^'i ' f gleaaea Oood Sized Audience 

. Till ir I P„j|l!li||?,.iiiil.. I'litlirr the 

Victoria thea;i^:WW^ilW fUed last 
evening to hear Mfldarne Labadle's ren- 
dering of El Gran Galeoto, an adapta- 
tion of the Spanish drama by Joso 

Madame Labadle Is a beautiful wo- 
man and as she personated the actors 
In tiie drama she Urst intcrosied and 
then thrlUt'd her audience. The title 
of the drama really means the "Great 
Go.ssit)," and as tho plot developed the 
terrible harm that suspicion and rumor 
can do was shown in a way that will 
not soon be forgotten by any who were 
present, and the plot was a simple one. 
A Spaniard, high in court favor, took 
tlto son of his dearest friend to live 
with hlni. The young man. Ernest, was 
poor, for his father was ruined in the 
Spanish war, but ho shared in tho 
wetUth and pleasures Of his host. The 
-wife of Pon .Tullen was a beautiful wo- 
man and It waa tho gossip of evil- 
minded men and women, chief of whom 
were the brother of Don Julian, and 
his wife, that led to the ruin of the 
reputation of an innocent man and wo- 
man and the death of a loving husband 
who.«;e faith in his wile and friend had 
been destroyed, 

Madame Labadle's portrayal of the 
scene between the wife and h-cr slster- 
In-law wTien the latter told her of the 
su.splcions of the people of the city waa 
an e.xcollent piece of work. Mo-st effec- 
tive, also, was the last scene, where the 
broken hearted wife and loyal friend 
strove to force their way to the dying 
husband, whos« mind had been poisoned 
against them. 

It Is not often that so flne an ■elocu- 
tionist as Madame Labadle visits Vic- 
toria. The recital was under the aus- 
pices of the Woman's Aiixillnry of the 
Koyal Jubilee HospltRl, In aid of the 
building fund. 


Iiocal Arohitacts Xilsten to Fapar Baiad 

on Engineer's Standpoint Bead by 

Mr. F. H. Sprag'u* 

The Victoria chapter of the Society 
of British Architects met last night to 
listen to a paper on the heating of 
building.'), from tho eufjineer's stand- 
point, read by Mr. F. H. Sprague, of 

The ffpeaker emphai»lzed the econ- 
omy and advisfibility of the engineer 
being called in when the architect pre- 
pared his workln.g plans rather than 
after a striicturo l.s In process of con- 
striK'tion, when alterations wer^^i apt 
to be costly. He also drew the atteri- 
tlon of those present to the soundness 
of the principle that the quicker the 
steam is conducted to tho point where 
it i.s to do its work tho greater Is its 

.Speaking of a purely college educa- 
tion, Mr. Sprague related a. story of 
an engineer fresh from such an In- 
stitution, who, finding himself 
cramped for room when putting in a 
liniler. calmly rublved out a column 
nvirked on tho plan, and so supplied 
himself with the nece.sKary space.

l.aur!«r in temp6irlzine> on the (itaestlon 
of an emergency contribution. In this 
respect the premier of British Columbia 
shares the view of the vast majority of 
Canudlaa.s in bolngr disappointed that 
the leader nf tin liiu'ial party do«s not 
st-e his way clear to outline his views 
on wliat Canada's relationslilp should 
b'j towards the Motherland In the ma t- 
tm- of Imperial defence. Sir Wilfrid 
today appears in the role of wn oppor- 
tunist and It i.s one which will greatly 
ili'crease any semblance of power he 
BtlU retains during the coming months. 

Sir Richard was very happy in his re- 
inarlts about the ct'fffeat of reciprocity 
luivingr "standartiized" tlie Canadian peo- 
ple. There is not a shadow of a doubt 
that he Is right. Our neighbors over 
tlie border entertain a much more whok- 
some respect for us than they did in 
the pre-reclFpocily 'i;.\s. Mr. Borden's 
\ Ictory has made us an entity In more 
sp-nses tlian one. Our nationality with- 
in tlie empire has been recognized for a 
lotiR time past by the peoples under the Hag. and now it is an acknowl- 
I -'I fact by the government and the 
inhabitants of the United States. Thua 
wo have Rained, not only in self r«spect,

It is a good thing that the premier 
of this province has been able to go 
baclc to Ottawa. Th-e people of eastern 
Canada linow all too little about Brit- 
ish f^'olumbia, and It Is well to realize 
that such a sturdy champion of Our 
i(lf;il.';, resources anil opportunities 
slioiild let the east know of the way 
upon which "we look on the problems 
which confront ili l^minlon. W ■■ do 
not claim that we uah teach them a 
great deal but We can ondoubtedi.v 
teach them something, and tht< closer

ilil.s great country.

Tt'; pre.s<?nt war has been maturing 
f >r the ciuarter of a century. A 
■writer In Tl.c London IJally New.s li.i.s 
rf:HU«r!tate(l copies of tho trfatloa of 
San Stefano anil Berlin marktd with 
the ni«me of W. K. Gladistoiio and scored 
with the Ink from his pen. There is onv. 
paiisAgR which l.s urulerllned mo.ot heav- 
ily, whloh contains what Lord Salis- 
bury said in d^-fence of the Treaty of 
Uerlin and incidentally sumn up the 
famous policy of "Peace With Honor." 
It la aa followa: 

"It (the B«rll'n Treaty) has radically 
chanr«d the dlapoRltion of the vn«it re- 
gion to Which, m the Treaty of San 
Kteflhno, the name of Bulgaria is given.

|»fac*d Ubilar th« dlro«;t poUUoal and 

military rule of the Sultan, and In tills 
retransfer are included Thrace and 

It wan many years later, when an- 
other Balkan crista arose, that Lor. I 
.Salisbury made confession that Britain's 
attitude in securing such coiiceBslons 
for Turkey In the treaty of Berlin had 
been a wrong one. The passage, which 
We have riuoted from Mr. GladHlone's 
wrltlnKs, lias an omlnoUB ring toiluy In 
the light of terrible happenings to 
whicl. aa yet no end can bo foreseen. 
Even at the time tliere seems no doiihc 
that Lord Salisbury liad some compunc- 
tion in hl.s work, for, as the writer In 
Ihe London .\'cws points out, lierc are 
the words \\ lib which the famoii.s dls- 
pal'.'h of 1S7S came to a conclusion: 

"Whether use will be made of this — 
probably the last — opportunity which 
has thus been obtained for Turkey by 
the interference of the powers of Kurope, 
an<l of Kntfland !n particular, or whether 
it is to be thrown away, will depend 
t!puf^<^fHg^j9lnc«rUy with which Turkish 
BtatdfH^'-vaow .addraas themaelveB to 
th« duties oje-'foeNl «9*en)met>t an'l tb«

- 'IPb b'ave'aeen that Turkajr dM wvt 
uveJI horoelf of the opportunity, and 
today ahe la reaping the reward in a 
harveat of blood. The dtaiiateh alao 
proves that Great Britain tooh a par- 
ticular" part In the policy which haa led 
uit to tha preaent war. That in the f a- 
tnre aettlemeint atie will alao be promi-

Is more than likely that he is taking the 
lead in the policy of waiting, which is 
apparently nowf that of all the powers, 
until the great decisive blow of the 
campaign has been struck. 

rcss that Is about to begin. Depend 
upon It, great as has been the progress 
oi the past, it will appear meagre when 
compared with the progress of the near 
future; much as the province has hith- 
erto been a land of opportunity, It Is 
tcday greater In this respect than ever.

Every person, who la familiar with 
what has been going on in Britisjh Co- 
lumbia during the past ten years, can 
cite instance upon instance where men 
have gone out "with a shoestring and

made great fortunes; in others they 
have gjt tpgather a competency; in 
others they have established themselvjs 
In flourishing business, it is writ large 
across British Columbia: "This Is the 
Land of Opportunity." 

Industry, foresight and courage will 
command siiccei^s here; Industry In ac- 
quiring a knowledge of the country and 
its needs; foresight in appreciating the 
course of events: courage that will face 
the future and take wliat It haa In store. 
The pessimist Is still with us. lie has 
been with us during all these years of 
progress. He did not know this; he had 
his doubts about that; lie was appire- 
heiislve that the other thing mlglit hap- 
pen. Wlien his neighbor built a busi- 
ness block, ho pointed out that he had 
lived here ten, twenty or forty years 
ago, and no one had thought It wise to 
build there before. When you told him 
that a certain section of the city Is rap- 
idly building up, he told you that he 
knew It when it was all woods, and lie 
.said It so as to convey the impression 
that it soon will again all b-> forest. 
He knew five ye'ar.s ago that Viiiicouv r 
real estate was hold at prices far be- 
yond Its value. He knew five years ago 
ago that land values in Victoria were 
ridiculously high. Some of us remem- 
ber ho%v he and Ms associates used to 
look on the rislnj; walls of the Pem- 
berton Block and shake their heads over 
the recklessness of the younger gjne- 
raii'uj. The pessimist is yet with us, os 
we have said. He admits that "things 
have turned out somewhat differently 
from what lie expected; but he knows 
the end has come now. He llkewlBe 
knew It had come last year and the 
year before last. -It will likewise be 
coming next year and the year after 
next, and so on. 

But the oriporiiinltlcK are here Just 
the .same; opportunities for the man of 
larKe capital, for the man of small 
capital, and for the man of no capital at 
all; opportunities In our cities. In our 
aiiluirhan dl.strlcts, in our great vacant 
areas. And always people arc selling 
these opportunities and turning them to 
good advantage. The best part of ihis 
\^ thut those, who do so, succeed not 
for tbem.selve.s alone, but create a tide 
01 success that carries us all forward 
In the right direction. 

Ill British Columbia wo arc only at 
the beglnnlnir of things. We have 
only touched, as it were, the hem of the 
warniu'iit of our wealth and advantages. 
Wf may tliliik wc have seen great things 
In the past, and so wc have. Wc have 
seen cities grow where the forest was a 
few years aga We have seen the track- 
less wlldi>rneM opened by roads of stewl. 
We have seen highways bulli to grid- 
Iron the land. We have seen a fleet of 
■ ci'an llnera where not long ago there 
were only a few. We have seen palatial 
steamers built to ply upon our Inland 
waters and replace the craft that did 
duty In the days of stagnation. It haa 
nil been vary wonderful and very in- 
spiring, but it only the prelude of the 
great drama of the future; It la only 
tho overture to the grand opera of prog*

minor matter, that will be remedied now 
that attention has been drawn to it. 
The failure of the office to keep abreast 
of its work seems to be due to the very 
simple fact that the staff Is not equal 
to the demands upon it. How things 
are in other registry offices we do not 
know, but .our information is that the 
Victoria office is far from being In an 
exceptional condition. 

The situation is one that does not 
admit of delay. It is hardly necessary \ 
to Say that in these days of frequent 
transfers of the same property, it Is 
very necessary that the work of regis- 
tration should be brouglit up to date and 
we submit for the consideration of the 
government the advisability of taking 
whatever steps may be necessary to dis- 
pose of all arrears In the shortest pos- 
sible time. Obviously under existing 
conditions the prcibabilities of the of-

graceful act on the part of the Elec- 
toral College to call It unanimous. 

The gross earnings of the United

Mr. Castell Hopkins, who spoke before 
the Canadian Club yesterday, is en- 
dowed with a breadth of view which 
rendered his talk on the modern ten- 
ds ncy of imperialism especially Inter- 
esting. In advocating that whatever is 
done In the matter of defence the pol- 
icy must be a constructive one we be- 
lieve tliat he voiced what Is the opinion 
of all Canadians. There will bo few 
among us who will not be ready to nc- 
knoWledge the debt we owe to Oreat 
Britain and the relations of the two 
countries which ho so capably explained. 

Mr. Hopkins has made a special study 
(f the siiliject on which he spoke yes- 
teiday. As well aS being an author of 
various books dealing with public af- 
falrfi, he Is a member of the executive 
committee of the British Empire League 
and \\:\>i one of the, founders of the 
%1'Jniplre Club of Canada In 1903. He Is 
a good speaker and the manner In Which 
he'iN'M his subject bears Die Im- 
print of careful reasoning. it is a 
Ileasurc to listen to men of his t.\)M 
and wc hope that the Canadian Club 
will have man.v more such anions Us 

Judging from the space devoted by 
the press to sporting news, one might 
think this a sporting generation; but 
it is not so. A ineQ who looks on at a 
game. Is no more a sportsman than a 
man, who listens to a band. Is a musi- 
cian. There, perhaps, has not been a 
time in many years when the public 
participated individually in manly 
sports In as slight a degree as they 
do today. 

Mr. J. Ellis Barker, of whom we know 
something in Vic.toria, i.« to the front 
with a suggestion that Great Britain 
should undertake to guarantee the posi- 
tion of the United States in Panama In 
consideration of equal treatment to ail 
nations in the uso of the canal. When 
Mr. Barker was here a year ago he en- 
deavored to convince The Colonlat that 
Great Britain could not 'guarantee her 
own position anywhere. 

The girls in Baltimore have a now 
fad. They tarn in false alarms. The 
remedy in such case made and provided 
ought to be in the empowering of the 
chief of the fire department to apply 
a slipper as many times as he thought 
desirable where, according to establiiihed 
tradition, it will do the most good, 
whenever he is lucky enough to catch 
one of tlie scamps. 

Great Britain, says a dispatch, will 
have to import 25.»00,000 bushels of 
wheat more than she did last year ow- 
ing to the bad harvests. While this 
will make a market for a good deal of 
Canadian grain. It is hardly a matter 
for congratulation. To a very rich 
coiintry like Ureat Britain tlie i>rlce 
of 25,000, UOO bushels of wheat may 
not seem much, but It will be Just so 
much less nioney to be distributed 
among the farmers, who have had .suf- 
ficient hard luck already.

Poverty a Crime 

Sir, — Poverty in a horrible and 
dreadful crime. Tliero Is some differ- 
ence of opinion as to who is the crim- 
inal. One 8cb»ol of p61Ulcians seem 
to think it is the poor person, and. 
they harry and harra-js llie miserable 
victim with ail the rigor of the law. 
It is a crime to be poor. Move on. DO' 
not come between the wind and my 
nobility. Back to your kennel and 
cease to upoll my pUasure by being 
a blot on the landscape. The very at- 
mosphere of our law courts is one oC 
hostility to and prejudice against the 
poor man. Another school of politici- 
ans with greater Justice look upon 
society itself as tlie real criminal. Who 
created the slums in which childj-en. 
grow up diseased in body and mind., 
human wreckage doomed froni the be- 
ginning to find its goal in the prison 
and tjie lunatic asylum? Who per-

special, meeting of the W. C. T. U. wa-i 
held in the Store street men's mission 
yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Wllllscroft 
presided and the matron's report showed 
that the work was growing much too 
large for the present premises. A dis- 
cussion on the po.s8lbiUty of building 
on the new site obtained between Pan- 
dora and Cormorant streets, nearly op- 
po.slto the Market hall, ensued. It was 
decided that no further steps could bo 
taken until the present property was 
solil. The matron reported that bedding 
was needed and it was resolved to Is- 
sue an appeal for blankets or coverlets 
of any kind.

With Justice sitting idly by;

Have we, as citizens, fulfilled our

dict of accidental death with a rider to 
the effect that the attention of the tele- 
phone company be called to the ;ieces- 
sity of keeping posted in a conspicuous

warning the public against danger? I

am 1, to my knowledge, acquainted with 
any of tlie messenger boys, but in the 
interest of the brave little felloe's no 
necessary, it seems, in the social service 
of the business world, who are always 
on the jump, and for the paltry pittance 
of 2 ',■4 cent.s per message, I cannot let

my part in the liope thai .something

material interests are such that thhs 
cannot be done without additional pres-

the mothers of our city take the matter

Sir — If tho city council did what 
they had no authority to do 'by taxing 
property exempt under the "Municipal 
Clauses Act" and as there was no ajf- 
peal against such unjust taxation. 
therefore It must stand. The decision 
of the Court of Revision cannot over>- 
ride tho Act. Had the church party 
appealed it- would toe countenancing a 
right the city did not possess.

The rumor that Halonlca had been oc- 
cupied is not confirmed, but it is kiuiwn 
tlie town is hard pressed. 

Mu.ssulmen continue to arrive at the 
outskirts of the capital from practically 
the whole \country south of the Bul- 
garian advance. The scene outside the 
city walla of Adrianoplo is one of dire- 
ful dl.strcs.s. Men, women and children, 
carts and cattle Jiro huddled together. 
The authorities are trying to supply the 
Immediate wants of the refugee.?, and 
have decided to send them to .Asia 
Minor. Thous.inds have tramped the 
'Oiintry durln- the Inst ten days, and 
have suffered Intensely, They say that 
they feared the Invaders would burn the 
villa g-i'.x. 

Ambnasadorlal Oonferance 

The ambas.sador."! of t)'.c five powers 
had a meeting, thia morning at the 
Porte, and there met the Grand Vizier 
and the foreism minister. It Is under- 
stood that they discussed measures of 
public safety and the question of me- 
diation, but nothing is known of the 
decision reached. The Powers as yet 
have made no move with reference to 
mediation. ., 

The commander of the western Turk- 
ish army telegraphs that Zerovltch, 
which is on the southernmost loop of 
the Salonica, Monaatir rnilway, has 
been captured from the Greeks. He also 
report.s that a .Servian cavalry detach- 
ment with machine guns h;is been 
routed at Perlepo. 

Before Tchatalja 

LONDON, Nov. 7.— 'J'lie past ^1 hours 
has brought little nev.'s of Importance 
from the seat of war. The report that 
.Salonica ha.s been evacuated is prema- 
ture, and a similar report concerning 
-Monastir Is silU unconfirmed. 

There has been no authentic news of 
the nllsged defeat of the Turks before 

On the contrary, a Constantinople 
di.ipalch clalm.s there are no Bulgariii,U3 
before Tchatalja, and that both 
armies are rewting. The Turkish re- 
ports regarding the progress of the war, 
however, have been .so consi.stently mis- 
leading as to have little value. 

The present lull in the" news may 
mean that some important action Is 
progressing. In the meantime diplo- 
matic effortH to end the war are mak- 
ing no progres.s, and the European press 
Ih busy dlRcus.'^ing all the aspects of 
the settlement of the difficulties. 
Kv(i\ thing tends to show that the most 
irreconcilable antagonism will arise 
over the allocation .n' the Turkish ter- 
rltor\-. Sfervla clalm.'i a.s her share a 
large part of Albania, including the 
A<lriatln port.<< of Duia/zo. .Mle.ssio and 
San Giovanni di Medul. 

According to Servians a statement of 
the Paris Temps, says the allies desire 
the partition of European Turkey, leav- 
ing the fate of Constantinople to the de- 
cision of the powers. Another import- 
ant meeting occurred at Bucharest to- 
day between the Roumanian premier and 
the Russian and Austrian ministers. 

It is rumored that the powers will 
communicate to tho Balkan states Turk- 
ey's reqiiest for mediation. 

Abdullah Pasha, lately commanding 
the Eastern army, has arrived at Con- 
stantinople. The Vali of .Vdrlanople has 
sent a dispatch briefly outlining recent 
operations. Tho last sortie occurred

-Mis.s M. LOdith Durham, in a si)<?clal 
despatch to Tho Daily Chronicle from 
I'odgorlt/a, dated Wednesday, indicates 
that the Montenegrins before Scutari 
are making little progress aganist the 
Turks. I>escrlblng the retreat of the 
-Montenegrins sJic say.s Turkish shells 
were bursting before and behind lier. 
She continues: 

■■The Montenegrins burned all tho 
houses of tho Turks as they retired, 
although they reached Grulnur, where 
the -Montenegrin forces were rallied, and 
sent as reinforcements to Scutari where 
all next day tho fighting was so violent 
th-ere was no time even to think of 

"Down below on our right, towards 
Vraja, a terrific fire was being maintain- 
ed and away on the left whence wo had 
come, shells could be .seen bursting in 
the Karl valley, the smoke from burned 
houses still being seen In the sky. 
Bombardment Continues . 

"While whiff.s of smoke rising away 
from the same spot told that the Mon- 
tenegrin shells were falling well within 
the fortifications of Tab«iro8lh, the at- 
tack on. Scutari was beinfc made from 
all sides. As there seemed no immed'- 
ate prospect of Scutari being re-captured 
I decided to return to Podgorltza, being 
influenced by tlie fact that I had not 
had my ck)the>s off for fifteen days, so 
on .Saturday I left the army and, riding 
•ill day .Sunday, reached Podgorltza to- 

Miss Durham then t^ells of many 
treacherous murders and outrages by 
Bashi Ba/.ouks who posed as .\lbanians 
and conclude.'! her stotement: 

"Intensely cold weather lia-s set in, 
and unless Scutari has fallen tl'.c war 
win end soon In this reslon. The Mon- 
tenegrins have suffered terribly. An 
Austro-Hungarlan peace mission to Scu- 
tari has failed. The Moslem nuartcrs 
at Scutari will he bombarded tomorrow. 
Montenegrins from the United States 
are beginning to arrive." 

The London newspapers this morning, 
discussing the question of intervention, 
hold that disposal of Alhanlnr forms the 
crux of the position. While It is jis- 
serted that Vienna insists that any at- 
tompt on i^ervla's pai"t to encroach on 
Albania will be regarded as a casus 
belli, the concensus of editorial opinion 
Is that the prospects arc neither 
worse nor better than they were and 
that after the Bulgarians have taken 
Constantinople a way will surely be 
foimd to adjust the allies' territorial de- 
mands in a manner satisfactory to the 
victors and avert hostilities between the 
great powers. ^

to the British embassr at Cons tan ttnopio

slated that the mortality of the war tn 
the Balkans will be ntade enoranoua, •• 
muob iff dtoeun a« toy flibttef . Th* »r^ 

rangemcnts for the sick aftd wounded 
on both Hides, he says, are exceedingly 
l!:!u!eqti;ite and all the help of the Red 
Cioss and Red Crescent organizatlans 
will be more Ihun needed. The auffer- 
i ings of non-combatants will be almost 
as great as those of the soldiers. 

The penniless refugees in Con.slantl-

smallpox are to be the most feared and 
If cholera, of which there Is .seiious ilan-

mously increased.

The Trail of 


The prospect of tho Greek occupn- 
tion of .Sulonlkl has disintegrated the army defending the city. The 
fleeing soldiens are streaming in with- 
out arms, ragged and exhausted by 
fatigue, hunger and cold, .\mong the 
fugitives ai'e a number of officers. 
Some of these escaped, disguised as 
women, wearing tho Moliammedan 
veil. The soldiers are utterly cowed, 
nnd refused to rejoin their companies. 

Ten officers on Monday sought to 
Icavo! aboard a steamship for Coii- 
.Htantinoplc, but the ve.'^se! was stopi)ed 
by a gun fired from Fort Kerabournou, 
and tlie officer.? wcro taken prisoners 
by the authorities. Four were put to 
death with twenty soldiers for aban- 
doning their posts. The city is short 
of provisjons. The residents of the 
stibiirb.s are flocking panic-stricken, 
making the chaotic conditions worse. 

Tho mosques, schools and churche.s 
and all public buildings are packed 
with refugee."*. 

Numbers of wounded are also arriv- 
ing. The Turkish soldiers speak of 
the Greek artillery as the "sclan top," 
or the, devil's cannons. 

Newspapers alluding to Greek vic- 
tories have been suppressed. All the 
garrison retaining a somljlance of di.s- 
cipline is being consentrated at Top- 
sin to oppose the advance of the en- 
emy. In the meantime the Christian 
population is living in agony, In 
dread of possible massacres, and 
praying for the entry of the Greek

Extending Premises — Through the 
agency of Mr. Arthur Coles, the Hlck-

completed the purchaHe of the property 
adjoining their present premises on 
Yates street. The purchase price was 
$35,000. The new property will give the 
company an extra thirty feet frontage 
and a depth of 120 feet. It is owing lo 
a rapidly increasing bu-'tlness, as is the 
case with Victoria's mercantile com- 
munity, that the illckman-Tye Company 
finds it necessary to provide more space.

Bjrg'-X.aytnj Oonteat — Figures for an 
egg-laying contest at Roseworthy poul- 
try station. South Australia, conducted 
in 1911-12, are given in the latest bulle- 
tin of the Dominion department of agri- 
culture. There were IZC. pens of pIx 
birds marked and they produced 133,093 
eggs, or an average of 176.04 per hen. 
The best pen averaged 264.83 per hen, 
and its total of ir.89 eggs constitutes a 
record. The birds wpre White Leghorns. 
In another competition at Kybybollte the 
winning pen laid 1464 eggs, or .xn aver- 
age per hen of 244 eggs. It will thus 
be seen that breeding for good egg-lay- 
ing strains has made great strides In 
Australia, as It is not long since thHr 
best average per bird was In the neigh- 
borhood of 130. Conditions there are 
almost ideal for poultry owing to the 
absence of low temperatures. The Can- 
adian record at present la held by th» 
performance of a pen of Barred Ply- 
mouth Rocks at the Ontario Agricultural 
CoUe»e with an average of 26> per bird,

X^aboc Candidates — At the last meeting 
of the local Trades ami Labor Council 
the question of selecting candidates to 
run m the forthcoming municipal cam- 
paign was brought up and it was agre^jd 
to call a special meeting on Wedneeday 
to discuss the advisability of the step 
and In the event of deciding in favdr of 
so doing, to make arrangements for the 
.selection of suitable men. 

KefasoB Point Grey Grant — The pro- 
vincial government has decided that It 
cannot accede to the rlquest advanced 
in behalf of the municipality of Point 
Grey by Councillor A. M. Stewart, for 
a special grant of $25,000 (In addition 
to the arranged provincial contribution 
for such purposes) In consequence of 
the rapidly growing demand for school 
accommodation in the interested munl- 
clpalJty. Formal Intimations as to this 
decision was yesterday transmitted to 
the petitioners. 

Exchange IiuncUcon — Arrangements 
liavo been made by the Heal Estate Ex- 
change to hold a luncheon in the Bal- 
moral hotel on Wfdnesday when Mr. 
Ernest McGaffey, secretary of the Van- 
couver Island Development League, will 
deliver an address on tlie subject of Vic- 
toria real estate from a layman's 
point of view. Tickets for this luncheon 
can lie obtained from the secretary of 
the Exchange, or from members of the 
luncheon committee, Messrs. Monk, 
Rocjdfort, White, Wllmot and Power! 
Tlie charge is $1. 

Nanalmo Davaloping— An interesting 
,coinincntary upon the Industrial de- 
velopment of N'analmo Is to be found In 
the fact just announced, that it Is the 
Intention of the E. & N. railway to 
have surveys made and plans drawn 
for tlie extension of the yards there. It 
tfl pointed out that the growth of com- 
mercial enterprise In the city and dis- 
trict has discovered the Inadequacy of 
tlie present facilities for handling the 
eamc, and the action of the company Is 
now being taken to relieve the situation, 
not temporarily, but permanently. 

Cenaorljig the Movays — During the 
next of tlie provincial legisla- 
ture, opening early in January. It Is un- 
derstood that amendments will be 
.sought In the license law creating cer- 
tain efflcers vested with authority a.s 
Issuers of licenses wltli censorship juris- 
diction In the matter of moving picture 
films. A.<3lde from providing the ma- 
chinery of law In the license or munici- 
pal clauses act, the provincial authori- 
ties will have little to do in the matter, 
a-i moving picture shows are not con- 
Hilcuous In the unorganized districts 
and everywhere else throughout the 
province the various municipal authori- 
ties would exercise jurisdiction. 

Victoria Carnival Week— The execu- 
tive of the citli!en.s' I'ommlttee met y-os- 
terday afternotm In the board of trad.* 
rooms to discuss details concerning the 
carnival to be held in the city next 
August. One of the flrst things the 
committee did was to decide upon a 
.suitable name for tlio function. After 
considerable discussion It was agreed 
tliat "Vietorid Carnival Week" would 
best meet the requirements of the case. 
In the absenc* of Aid. Cuthbert the 
chair was taken by Mr. C. K Do Sails, 
vice president. Mayor Beckwlth was 
among those who attended the meeting. 
The only public business transacted, 
ai'art from the naming of the carnival,' 
was the appointment of Mr. C. A. Solly 
to represent the eommittee at the Pasa- 
dena rose tournament to be held 
January 1, 1913.

"Xot only h.>s"Blie ffTPI^Tr'us her tra- 
ditions and history; she has given us 
Institutions. and such Institutions. 
I'lrsi nmong them is the monarchy. 
All T7nder One Tlag-. 

"Other nations have lo clioosc be- 
tween extreme despotism or semi-des- 
potism of a monarchical system .such 
as they have in Germany, and extreme 
democracy, which so often ends In the 
extremest demagogy, such as we have 
in countries that need not be men- 
tioned. We have been given this sys- 
tem of things which is altogether Aloof 
nnd apart from any political policy or 
coiiteiitious question. 

"It stands as the visible and ob- 
\ iouB embodiment of the spirit of 
Great Britain, not only )n Canada hut 
througliout the empire, for all the peo- 
ple who live under the flag. It is 
-something which governments and peo- 
I'les of other countries in their heart 
of hearts envy. 

"I sometimes think It must make 
them wish to He«.ven that Providence 
had endowed them with the same Insti- 
tutions. That, gentlemen, is one of 
the prime points of imperialism. You 
could not have the British empire for 
one week without a Klngr who stood 
for the whole of It, for 'no party or 
political faction, but for the whole em- 
jilrp tlmt eiii'ircles the world. 

What Britain Has Spent Hera. 

"I want to tell you .something which 
in my knowledge we owe to Groat 
Britain, and which the masses do not 
realize at all. 

"I had occasion some years ago to 
try and work out what the acquisition 
of Canada had cost the Bflliah tax- 
PHycr. T found that the wars, in- so 
far a.s they reUited to the conriucst of 
Cnn;)da cost the British taxpayer five 
liundred million dollars; I found thai, 
eliminating these wars. and tHkiiig 
simply the maintenance of peacfr In 
C'anad.i during the nineteentli (!entury. 
which meens the building of fortifica- 
tions at different points, the creation 
of canals In eastern Canada, and the 
upkeep of the fleet in the Atlantic and 
Pacific — which, of course, would have 
heen maintained but for the fact of 
Canada being so connected with Great 
Britain — cost the Britlsli taxpayer an- 
other^.|l.Ve hundred million dollars; 1 
found that the placing of reliiglous life 
In this country, through the establl.«ih- 
ment of Christianity, missionary ef- 
fort and contributions. cost another 
hundred million; and T found that the 
giving of presents to the Indians dur- 
ing tlie first fifty years in order to pre- 
serve peace for tlie early setller.s of 
the country, cost at least twenty mil- 
lions more; nofi so on. 

"I found that the total expenditure 
by Great Britain, borne almost entirely 
hy the BrltflTh taxp.ayer. In the acqui- 
sition and development of Canada, cost 
her thirteen million dollars. 

Aapacta of Impariaiiam. 

"These are fact.s which few Cana- 
dians realize. And what does It all 
mean? It means that If the vast ex- 
penditure of money was made for n 
country and a people which was to re- 
m«in British then it was a magnifi- 
cent Investment, if not made originally 
as an Investment. Tf, on the other 
liand, this tMJuntry should In time de- 
sire or decide to repudiate Its allegi- 
ance to the British crown — which I am 
sure will never be the case— then It 
would be BO much money thrown Into 
the sea. That covers two points of 
the aspect of Imperialism which I de- 
sire to pre sent you this afternoon, 
the flrat. that which wt- owe to Great 
Britain for our traditions and our In- 
stitutions'; and the second, that which 
We nwe her for the tremendous ex- 
penditure of money made on hehalf of 
our development. 

"There la another element In the 
modern tmperlaliam which must not be 
9Vi|leok««; tbiil U Uia eoMtra«Ur« 

element. Imr«rlalism, I take It, is 
nothing If it do«» not in the first place 
issue from true ^splratlona and senti- 
ment developed out of Inherited condl- 
tlons. in the second place It is the 
reprcBenlatlon in the hearts and minds 
of people In all parts of the empire 
that can be and will be an Imperial 
unity, forming the British empire and 
living under thu British flag, 
Za OonatructlTa Slamant. 

"But in order that this condition of 
things may be brought about imperial- 
ism must be more than a aentlmenlal 
element. It must be a constructive 
element. And gentlemen, the basis is 
here. We have the greatest fabric in 
the world's history, whether military, 
naval, nation«l or political. That fa- 
bric has been built up through history. 
It Is the result of evolution and de- 
velopment. All we have to do i.s tu 
build upon that fabric and create out 
of It something better even tlum our 
unceators ever dreamed of, something 
greater than has ever been tliouglit 
ivosslble by any nation of the world. 
That constructive policy must follow 
certain lines. We are In one' phase of 
It today. 1 refer to the question of 
Imperial defence. The German .situa- 
tion is merely a repetition of the situa- ,, 
tlon, which axisted dMrln^ the begin- 
i^iiir of the ntneteMili|;,-4iM|ktury, but In

Does Not Blame Oermaoa 

"Now It la well known that we poaaeas 
everytbtQg that Germany naturally and In- 
evitably want*. I do not blame Germany 
for wanting what We have; It la right from 
her point of view, but what I want to 
impress upon you Ic that It It euua'Iv right 
of Great Britain and ItB i Us 

outpoats and protect u: ' it" 


"It Is not a question of military or naval 
strength conquering the earth. Tou never 
heard of Great Britain making a war with- 
out a good and Just motive. 

•'The nrltlsh navy has long been the 
greatest factor In the world for peace; and 
the only dangor of the war In the Balkans 
developing more, serious proportions Is that 
the naVy Is not what It was. There Is 
another way In which I. may put it to you. 
The permanent prosperity of Canada, Au«- 
Vralta and South Africa depends ui)on tho 
itnmunlly of the heart of the empire's 
commerce, which represents the financial 
gupremacy of the world; touch that tender, 
susceptible thing and what happens. The 
development of this western part of Canada 
would be shattered. The progress of the 
empire depends upon that tender thing 
called credit, and that In turn depends 
upon the supremacy of the navy and Its 
ability to protect the empire. It Is mi- 
necessary to say rnore.. . 

IniperlallNm's Mrst I*ha*« 
. "As I said, we are In the midst of the 
first phase of imperialism. , We are going 
to do our duty, wo are going to say with 
Australia and South Africa that tho main- 
tenance of the British Empire In a con- 
dition of absolute supremacy. Is the most 
vital interest which th<j nations comprising 
that empire and owing allegiance to tho 
throne have. 

"Whether big or little, any contribution 
given to that purpose Is given wisely and 
well. In the future constructive policy 
which must Inevitably follow upon that 
contribution we must look put for thlsi, that 
whatever we do In the biilldlng of fleets 
and the construction pC ships. In the devel- 
opment of. local navfti or military powers, 
shall be given and shall be done with u 
idue appreciation of out' responsibility to the 
centre of the empire and the vast Interests 
Involved in the maintenance ot that empire. 

"The second point , which I would niak<> 
I In reference to this constructive policy takes 
me back to the political attitude of tho 
' British public at the present time. A 
change In government must come before 
long, and I take It that that change of gov- 
ernment will Inevitably bring us face to 
face with another principle of Imperialism 
as I understand It. That Is tho creation of 
a tariff system developed out of and built 
upon what wc first had In Canada, the 
luererentlal tariff Idea. 

Fiscal (.'o-opera'lon 

"Out of that prefjTcntlnl tariff Idea has 
already grown the British preference In 
.south Africa. .\u«trall«, New Zeuland, and 
I think, Jamaica. Out of the negotiations 
connected with the establishment of that 
Idea Is going to como some kind 01 fiscal 
unity or fiscal co-operation which will Im- 
mensely develop the Imperial trade of our 
peoples and establish upon a permanoiu 
basis the prosperity of the nations under 
the crown. I do not know what form li 
may take. I do not oven know how tar the 
manufjicturors of eastern Canada, would go 
In this respect. 

"Hui I ha\e not the slightest ddubt that 
Hililsh statesmen s'ttlng down with (."an- 
adtan slateamen with an honest rielermlna- 
llim to find some fair basis on whbh our 
mutual tariffs can be arranged so that 
what Is for the good of one will be for 
the gorid of all, that will not Interfere with 
llip manufHClurlng Interests of Canada and 
vet will ensure agricultural prosperity — I 
have not the slightest doubt that some 
solution of that question^ will be found. 
What else am statesmen for but to find 
8o:utlonB of these problems? 

"Thai brhiss me 10 the final construrllve 
point of my Idea of Imperialism, ami that 
Is the question of rei)rescntai|(in and con- 
trol. It mny be that we will merely de- 
velop our Imperial conference Into a peru)- 
anent council; It may be that we will de- 
velop the desired thing out of thu privy 
council, which is alrraily divided Inlii a 
nunitier of commltlee,^. 

Are .Many nnya 

"Tliere are many w.iyn In which the de- 
\Hlopment I'un take pinrp nnd all of them 
nro essy If wn onl.v desire It, nml oil of 
them Impossible If we do not deslm It. 1 
submit therefore, as In the best Interests of 
Ihe future of the empire, that When yon 
have a system of combination for defence, 
after you have got a system of combination 
for trade, you must have a system for the 
combination of the constitutional Interest* 
and represent St Ion of all Ihe countries In- 
volved. Those three things must Inevitably 
follow each other and 11 would be dlscradlt- 
Bble to us to sny that we were unable to 
dr\lse\the method or to find the solution of 
the problem. 

"The question ;■ the greatest 
h«fnre u* today. In It Is Involved the 
national lite of Canada, In It Is Involved 
what a peopl« like thoae of the Unltad 
States who have never had that outlook,

Home Made? 
> One nccd.s only to look at the shop 
windows and watch the customers, to 
-see -that mothers are giving up the work 
that ten years ago was done at home. 
It Is not long since fabrics and trim- 
ming.'-, occupied the greater space. Now 
from the baby In arms to the belle of 
the ball or the mature lady, garments 
are sold ready-made. The baker, the 
confectioner, the grocer. all supply 
dishes for the table. It is not only the 
overworked woman who Is tempted to 
give up one by one the tasks which made 
up the routine of her mother's life. 
In niHn\- n homf \\Iif>r(.> It Is necdsssary 
to exercise the greatest economy, the 
.sewing machine lies idle, while the 
mother of little girls buys pretty frocks 
and natty coats from the shops with 
the Idea that she Is getting them 
cheaper than she can make them. Tiicre 
.Tre thousands of people In every city 
who think that It pays to buy bread 
re.Tdy-made. when the family is srtinll. 
Most women believe thnt ii i.-^ cheaper 
to send clothes to the laundry than to 
engage a washerwoman, and that much 
trouble Is spared. In the same wny, 
nKiny a family buys vegctnblcs which 
could have been ral.sed at home if it had 
been considered worth while. 

Ther^ la another aspect to this fiues- 
tion. Are the women who are gr.-idu- 
(illy nilowing tlie old home occupollonK 
to drop out of their hand.s, profiting by 
the exchange of work or the leisure 
they have gained? Th's lis a Very Im- 
portant conslderHtlon. The industry of 
I>ap| generations of women was but too 
apt to degencJate into drudgery. But 
it tende<l to the development of a typo 
of unselfish, resourceful women who 
were notable hou.'iekeepers. It is not 
tlm" yet for Canada to i^p.Tre from hei- 
homes the womcTi wiio knew how to 
plnn, contrive nnd execute.' 'Home-made' 
should not bo a term I'f r^-proach in n 
new country. '.Vot that efficiency in 
other respects should be s.icrlficed to 
skin in tlie various crafts that go to the 
making of a model housekeeper. A 
woman mu."! alwfly-» remember that she 
is a wife, a mother nnd ii friend, a« 
well »•> the maurtger of a home. M('np.\- 
Ib not the only tiling to he saved, even 
by n poor woinnn. But It is folly to 
.«'iut o\ir eyes to the tendency of Idle- 
rie.'ts and extravagance on the part of 
the women of today. The rnnld in- 
crease In wealth ha«i made it possible 
for many women on this continent tn 
ll\e without work. Tliat this has not 
alwn\-.'« tended in the neighboring re- 
public, in the direction of culture or 
refinement is but ton npparent. It 
would be well If Canaflian women woulil 
be warned In lime to avoid a course as 
foolisli as it is iu.|urlo'iK. To encourage, 
in every way lujssihle, the Industr.v 
which, anjong women as well as men. l.« 
not ohl.v the foundation of national 
wealth, but of man.v virtues fur more 
Irf-.nnrtaut than wealth. Is the part of 
wise women.

ceiving a wire from the Regina club 
this morning as to the guarantee of

for Saturday's game with ti>c Rowing

ing, a meeting of the Rowing Club 
executive was held and the o/fer was

Terminal City Rugby Club 
Straighten Out Their Troubles 
— Heb Gillespie Selected to 
Replace Dai Thomas 

A dispatch from Vancouver says that 
locally everything is patched up In Rugby 
circles there and that the strongest possible 
team will leave there this evening. That 
moans that there is no doubt ot the Mc- 
Kechnle cup game being played tomorrow 
and, as Victoria Is fielding a formidable 
aggregation despite the withdrawal ot 
Thomas, a great game Is looked for. The 
notoriety given the sport In the last day or 
BO has served a useful purpose In arousing 
an extraordinary amount of Interest In the 
match and In making the local side more 
keen for victory, if that Is possible. 

At a meeting of the selection committee 
of the Victoria Rugby Union yesterday, 
J. H. (Heb. 1 aillesple w.i» selected to re- 
place Dai Thomas. aillesple will play In- 
side left, next to Martin. The two Grants, 
P. M. and C. C, will be on the right wing. 

The welcome announcement was made 
yesterday that F. 11. B. Champain will be 
able to play. He strained a musclo in his 
leg and for a time It was feared that he 
would have to be left oft the team. Should 
ho not bo able to turn out after all. It Is 
likely that Angus Mclnnes will take his 
place, although nothing official has been 
given out In this connection. 

Another slight injury occurred to one of 
the local players Wednesday evening In 
.icrum practice at the J. B. A. A. Carstalrs 
was accidentally hit on the face and a 
nasty looking swelling raised on his cheek. 
It Is thought, however, that It will not 
affect h!s playing tomorrow. 

Two changes are announced In the line- 
up of the Vancouver team, Manley replacing 
Smith on the forward line, and Bell-Irving 
taking TDean's place In the back division. 

The game will Start promptly at three 
o'clock. The referee ha* not yet been de- 
cided upon as Vancoi:ver's selection, Heb 
Gillespie. Is playing for Victoria, 

The teams are: 

Victoria — Fullback. Ed Steele; three-quar- 
ters, D. M. Grant. C. C. Grant. Heb Gillespie 
and C. Martin; halves, J. Shires and F. H. 
n. Champain; forwards, R. Gillespie 
(Capt.), G. Heinekey, O. Carstalrs, II. Ed- 
wards, ,1. Ackland, R. Dcnnlston, J. Hous- 
ton and J. M. Simpson. Reserve forwards. 
A. W. Mllllgan, T. C. Reed and E. Mc- 

V,ancouvcr — Fullback, Bullen; three-quar- 
ters. Bell, Baker, McLorg, Uoll-Irvlng; half- 
backs. Cadrtcll, McRoherts; forwards. Gray,

noted Taohtamen Donor of Costly Oup 
to Ba Oompatad for In 'Wlnnipar 

WINNIPEG. Man., Nov. 7. — The 
world's greatest rowins trophy will be 
competed for In Wlnnlpcff next year. It 
will be an International trophy open to 
the world. The donor Is Sir Thomas 

The cup will cost $5,000 and will be 
the most costly trophy ever presented 
for aquatic sports. The only condition 
Imposed by Sir Thomnf is that if thn 
Winnipeg club loses it they will try to 
to win It back, so that. If an Australian 
crew comes here after it and wins it, 
^VInnipeg will in turn send a rrew to 
Australia after the cup. If they do not 
win they must keep after It until the 
cup Is broug:ht back here again. The 
cup will be presented for either a four 
or eight oared crew race. 

The Winnipeg cluh, with Sir Thrmas 
Lipton's representatives, will draw up 
conditions for the trophy and crews 
from all ovpr the world will certainly 
compete here for possession of the 
trophy, which promises to become one 
of the most famous sporting trophies In 
the world. Sir Thomas made It very 
plain that the ctip must bear the coat 
of arms of the City of Winnipeg.

Coast and Canadian Champion 
Will Be Seen in Local Ring 
— Array of Talent for Next 

victoria wrestling enthusiasts will 
see the best amateur grrappler on the 
Pacific coast, or in Canada, at the 
next boxing and wrestling tournament 
here in the person of Al Hatch, a wel- 
terweight of the A'ancouver Athletic 
Club, who has been .secured to meet 
Middleton, of the J.B.A.A. It is hardly 
expecteti by who have seen 
Hatch [jcrform that Middleton will be 
returned a winner, but it expected that 
the local man will make the V. A. C. 
star hustle. 

-Middleton has .shown that he has 
ability, but he has never been given 
anything like a stiff try-out In a local 
ring, and It will be Interesting to sec 
just how good he is. 

The next boxing and wrestling tour- 
nament, being staged liy the J.B.A.A. 
promotf-rs is set for the Hth of this 
month and in addition to the above 
event Gil Martin, the (.'anudlau cham- 
pion middleweight boxer, of Vancou- 
ver; Art Fox, a V.A.C. featherweight; 
Huster O'Neill, a Seattle featherweight, 
and Duval, a Seattle lightweight, will 
likely be the opposltltm. The Vancou- 
ver contingent has been arranged with 
definitely, hut there may be a change 
In the Seattle squad. 

There Is no gainsaying the fact that 
with the above mentioned array of 
talent competing the tournament on 
the Hth will be about the best put on 
In the oity. The prices for the com. 
Ing tournament will range from J2 to 
50 cents. A substantlnl decrease from 
those charged at the last alTaii-. 



. with regard to the Vancouver RuKby 
Club's protest a«:alnsi the playing Dal 
Thomas, the Vlciorla club yesterday dis- 
patched the following query to the secre- 
tary of the Baglish Rugby fnlon; "Former 
Northern fnlon player reinstated as nn 
amateur In t?anad«. Is hp ellitlhle to piny 
in Canada?" 

An answer Is e;tpecled any time now. hut 
no matter what It I* the Victoria chih does 
not Intend to abandon the effort to get 
Thomas placed In good alandlcg by the 
B. C. union. It the answor Is In the 
afrirmatlve all well and good, but If in the 
necatlve. then the belief of local Ruirby 
man that tha B. C. union cannot Ue (aided 
l?y tlie atrict ruling of tha Bnglleh anion 
a* far aa professlonallara la concerned will 
be atrengthened. 

One of the questions that will be dis- 
cussed by the baseball magnates when 
tliey gather at the meeting of the Minor 
League Asoclatlon at Milwaukee nejct 
Tuesday is that of a salary limit. 

While It may not be possible for the 
baseball magnates to go farther than 
discussion in this connection at the 
meeting in Milwaukee it Is not impos- 
sible that before very long a plan, which 
Is on foot, to restrict all baseball leaguea 
to a salary limit, graded according to 
the rating of the league, may be 
adopted. The skeletonized proposition, 
which has as one of Its most earnest 
advocates Mrs. Helen Britton of the 8t. 
I.,ouls Cardinals, is that the major league 
.salary limit be set at $10.n00, class A A 
leagues a few thousand lower, and bo 
on down the line. 

As far as the Northwestirn League Is 
concerned, there Is no desire for a salary 
limit on tjie part of most of the owners. 
Bob Brown of the Vancouver Beavers, 
and Dugdale of the Seattle Giants, 
stated before they left for tlr6 Minor 
League meeting that they were Kreatly 
opposed to a move of this kind; in fact, 
they favored the lifting of the lid al- 

T. P. McConnell. one of the owners of 
the Victoria club, said yesterday that 
he concurred with Brown and Dugdale 
in this. He did not think there was any 
use laying down ^the law as to how far 
the clubs could go in the matter of sal- 
ary, as they were bound to get around 
it anj'way. 

For Instance, the salary limit In the 
Northwestern League la^3t season was 
?30no, and yet It Is well known that one 
or two of the clubs, at least, rinding 
that they couldn't keep under that and 
get the players they wanted, gave cer- 
tain players a bonus at the close of 
the se^ison in addition to their monthly 

Mr. McConnell believes that conditions 
In this league are such that It Is fast 
becomhiK Impos.slble to gather a p.-n- 
nant possibility and not pay more than 
$3000 a month "For Instance," he said, 
"a good man demands between $200 and 
$300. Some may play for as low as 
$180, but very few. Figure out what 
the amount would be for fifteen players 
at those prices." 

It reported that Tacoma wants the 
salary limit lowered to $2500, but the 
Tjgers are sure to encounter a Iii.sty op- 
position Tf they attempt any such dras- 
tic change.

TWeIr being holsteft"^" «rtW 1**tard 
what is more serious, may cause sudden 
death of Rugby In British Columbia. 

"Different circumstances and condi- 
tions make It utterly Impracticable for 
us to stick to the strict letter of tlio 
rules regarding- profe«slonalIsm In the 
English union," said a prominent Kugby 
man yesterday. "We have committed 
Infractions of th« English code In this 
respect on innumerable occasions and 
yet no complaint was ever made be- 
cause it was realized that it was Impos- 
sible to do otherwise. If the game was 
to survive In this country. 

"This being the case, the situation In 
a nutshell," continued the speaker. "Is as? 
follows: If the B. C. union abides by the 
rulings of the English union In their 
strictest sense then all of us — both Vic- 
toria and Vancouver club members — are 
technically profe.<y.Mionals, but If. on the 
otner hand, a reasonable latitude is al- 
lowed In our rulings th« Vancouver 
union can make no protest against any 
Victoria players which will hold water." 
Draft Own Kulee 

At the meeting of the B. C. Rugby 
union Saturday night Victoria represen- 
tatives win demand that the union 
draft rules of Its own hearing directly 
on the all-important ouestlon which has 
arisen. "What constitutes a professional 
in this country?" Of cours? if this is 
done the B. C. union will still continue 
to recogni7.e the En.^rllsh tmion as the 
authority on the playing code, and tlie 
highest court of appeal against decis- 
ions rendered by the referee. 

Should the Vancouver union refuse to 
admit that Rugby in the province cannut 
flourish on the same Simon Pure sys- 
tem aa Is exacted in the English union 
certain official.^ of the local orgntilza- 
tion Intend to lay the facts of the mat- 
ter 'n detail before the Engll.Mh union. 
This would undoubtedly result In the 
latter body declaring that In their eyes 
all British Columbia and. In fact, all 
Pacific Coast players, ure professionals. 

While It Is g«'nerally felt that the 
Vancouver club ha.s shown an unsports- 
manlike spirit In taking the stand it 
has it nevertheless Is admitted by some 
that there may be an excuse for the pro- 
test against Thomas, owing to the gross 
infraction of the amat.eur ruling com- 
mitted by the latter. 

Thomaa Za Candid 

Thomas does not deny having played 
In the Xorthcrn Rugby union, which Is 
a professional organization. He played 
for Halifax, Salford. the Old Kingston 
Rovers and Ebb Vale, the dlshandon- 
ment of the l.ast mentlon.ed club. It In 
said, having something to do with his 
coming to this country. 

But since coming to Canada Thomas 
has been iuriven his card by the Amateur 
Athletic union. On the strength of this 
he was permitted to play on the Winni- 
peg Rugby cluh and, according to Vic- 
torians, no valid reason can be assigned 
for Its Insufficiency to give him a clean 
sheet with the British Columbia Rugby 
union. But, as has beeh said, there are 
those who believe that nn Investl^^atlon 
will do no harm. 

Oaaaa of Hard faallng 

The real cause of the hard feeling 
agaliist Vancouver can be laid to that 
club's aspersions of irregularity In the 
manner in wlilch Edwards and Watklns, 
of the Calgary club, came to Join the 
Victoria forces. ThP.'!<? are said to be 
absolutely unfounded and an- made to 
appear all the more unfair by a state- 
ment made yesterday by Rewards who 
said that he was prepared to swear that 
he. together with Watklns, was offered 
funds to send for his family from Cal- 
gary should be desire to locate In Van- 
couver. He add'ed th.iit he was prepared 
to name the man — a prominent Vancou- 
ver Rugby enthusiast — who made him 
the offer If necessary. 

Another charge against the Vancou- 
ver Rugby men \h that they carried 
along several mcmber.i of the Vancou- 
ver Welsh club last year wh«n the men 
were out of work. 

Tn view of these fact* it doea not seem 
possible for Vancouver to go any far- 
ther In their chargea, and the probabil- 
ity la that at the meeting tomorrow 
nUght the matter will be threah«<l out 
from start to flnl^sh and a satisfactory 
undcratanding arrived at

You Can Boat, Yon Can Bathe. You Can 

You Can Shoot— All Near Town 



Free House and Lot and First-Class Motor Car for Two of the Purchasers— Perhaps for You. Read This 

Suppose you had a nice, cosy, incxpcn.sivc hunoalow or cottage, situated in 
a district where you could enjoy to the fullest extent, the summer pleasures of 
boating, bathing, where you could llsh and .shoot in season with the knowledge 
that you would not likely return witliout a "bag," wouldn't you be interested? 
Supjiose you had such a bungalow or cottage in a perfectly delightful spot, fac- 
ing placid and beautiful waters, nestling among lovely fruit and shade trees, 
sheltered from the sharp winds and getting the most" out of the sunshine, 
wouldn't you think that an ideal summer residence for you and your family? 
And, suj)p()se, finally you could have such a spot at an absurdly easy price, and 
so close to the city that you could live there in sunnner and still attend to business 
in town, wouldn't you be inclined to look it u[) at once? 

"Summerland" fulfills all the above conditions and more. Fronting on the 
w^aters of the r:s(iuimalt Lagoon and sloping gently towards them, this magnifi- 
cent piece of proi)erty has long been admired as the Heatherbell Orchards. It is 
close to the city now, and when the government road is completed it will be still 
closer. Wc liave cut this fine j^roperty up into vari-sized lots, all ample for home 
purposes, and we arc selling them at a smart clip to business and professional 
men and others who want to have inexpensive, yet delightful summer places. 

Lots Range in Size From 60 x 200 
To Nearly a Whole Acre 

We are not saying much about the investment possibilities of this property. 
They speak for themselves. Suffice it to say that we are selling the property 
cheaper, IN LOTS than the neighboring property is bringing IN ACREAGE. 
1 here is no other waterfront in Victoria at our prices. 

A great many of the lots contain splendid fruit trees, and the rich, wejl- 
worked soil is j)rime for gardening or lawns. There are also some delightfulim- 
mense shade trees. Otherwise the lots are clean as a whistle. We are grading 
the main streets, and there will be a general landing at the foot of one of these, 
givmg every lot access to the Lagoon, with equal rights in the landing.

,^^_ attempt to carry out 'the letter 

of tlie Taw would excite the most de- 
tormlntHi and emphatic objection, not 
without foundation. 

"What become necessary in this 
province before Ions," remarks Hon. Dr. 
Young, "Is an Institution In the nature 
of a segregation school, in which the 
backward pupil, the mentally deficient, 
may be given special and scientific at- 
tention, with a view to mind a.s well as 
body being built up and backward men- 
tHl grasp stimulated and developed. As 
conditions necessarily are, at present, 
the system operates adversely to the 
satisfactory development of the so-called 
stupid pupil, and the advancement of 
the remainder of the class." 






Kettle yaUey BaUroad 

Thf first locopotive of the Kettle 
Valley Railway last week arrived In 
Penticton, attached to a work train and 
destined to h.iul material for building 
up from the wharX as construction pro- 
ceeds east and west of the town. Mrs. 
J. J. Warren, wife of the president of 
the K. R. v., ijlew the first whistle 
and ranjr the hell when the locomotive 
was unloaded from the barRo, under Us 
own steam. On board the cnijlnp and 
caboo.<«; were also Miss Lorna Warren, 
Masters Fred and Jeffry Warren, Miss 
Bach, Mrs. Klrkpatrlck, Miss Klerstead, 
Meffsrs. C. Gordon, Graham, C. Morgan, 
Hood, D. Eastabrook and Carr. 

Anotlier notable event of last week 
In the prosreas of railway construction 
within thf province was the arrival at 
I'ort Steelie of the flrst passenger train 
to come In over tlve metals of the 
KoDtcnay Central. the bulldinp of 
which to open up the fertile and beauti- 
ful upper Columbia valley is now pro- 
pressing rapidly. 

On the Gram! Trunk Pacific a gap of 
I'ss than (00 miles now reciuirea to bo 
l-rldged to unit* the eastward and west- 
ward moving construction forces; while 
on the Canadian Nortbern Pacific extra 
satisfactory progress Is brtng aocom- 
pllslied on both Island and Mainland sec- 
tions. The line between Port Mnnn nnd 
Mop<> Is now fully completed and will 
this week be formally Inspected In be- 
half of both federal and provincial gov- 
ernments. The formal Inauguration of 
passenger traffic will probably await Sir 
Richard McBrldc's rptiirn from tlie mi- 
tional rapitnl. 

On the Pacific Gre<j t Kastern. too, 
active . construction is to bogin this 

An Zll-AdvlBed Venture 

All tlini today remains of the centre 
,'ind capital of the famous (or Infamous) 
.'Steamboat Moxmtaln mining romp of a 
year or tv/o ago, is one little white spot 
r.,000 feet up the mountainside, which 
marks the site of Greenwalt and Steev- 
en*' cabin, in the valley b-r-low are the 
two townsite.". one occupied by the large 
hotel of Still & McDonald, and five 
smaller buildings. Two miles furtlier to 
the soutb are Raymond * Mclntyre's 
hotel, and four smalk-r shacks, standlriK 
in a silent valley. The only district 
where there .seems to be any movement 
is at the Twenty-lluec Mile, where one 
may hear the acija.sion.'il boom of :i dis- 
tant shot In <mo of tlic mines near llic 
mounteUi top. It Is lioped that llie 
hard work of today will make a per- 
manent mining town for the future.

Trek to Interior 

More ncwcnmers arc .still going in- 
to the Fort George district by the, 
great Knaser water highway than by 
the Cariboo road, and tills will un- 
doubtedly continue to bo the cnse un- 
til the winter .«ph1b the gates of the 
river. Tliough there Is some differ- 
ence In the details of travel from the 
comfort of motors or reading parlor 
car chairs, the majority of ingoing 
trav«lK'r» seem to prefer the humble 
and slow-moving raft to the prairie 
schooner. These rafts, hurrying as 
much as rafts may be said to hurry. In 
order to complete their Journeys Into 
the mysterious land of promise before 
the rtv«r <»lo«es, are of all sizea, shapes, 
patterns snd colors of wood, novel In 
design and studies In the very alphabet 
of marine architecture — some bound 
with cords or bits of tape, others with 
cast-off hay fealc «rires, yet others 
raahloBsd of hna«h« and orc^ers unl- 

The length over all of these rafts Is 
usually determined by that of the trees 
mares I the water, and never fxceeds 
fiflceii feet. Some are pyi-amldical at 
the bows, built for less reslalunce w.htn 
alloat and to Impel locomution. Those 
are the flyers of the river raft fleet. 
Tliey are few and far between, how- 
ever, for tho axiom as to "time, t.he 
essence of the contract," does not 
apply on the upper I'raser. One raft 
In the form of a large dry-goods case, 
laden to tho brim and with the top nailed 
down and nailed In protect a kit of 

ciimp utensils and the blanket8_ of two 
ifilltoaii laborers, went down to Fort 
tJcorge ten days ago. Tlie two 
furr-lgners In possession brought their 
quaint craft to dock, stepped gravely 
ashore, removed their worldly posses- 
.sions and then, Latln-Uke, with decor- 
ous hows and a few wliispored words 
of gmtUude for the safe conclusion of 
their voyaging, shoved their late home 
Into midstream and stood and watched 
It pass down the river and toward iii<- 
broad Pacific.

Pool BOOXQ Act 

It la apparently not of general 
knowledge, but nevertheless rte Sttib- 
■born fact, and one well to Keep In 
mind, that under the 'Pool Room Act 
of British Columbia, passed last ses- 
sion and brought into force and opera- 
tion In June, no youth under eighteen 
years of age may remain In a public 
pool room or be employed therein, this 
prohibition applying to all parts of the 
'province outside the municipalities — 
that Is In all so-called unorganized 
districts. Gainhling games and devices 
are also prohibited in pool room under 
the new act, and pool rooms are com- 
pelled to close at 11 o'clock each night 
and remain closed until 6 o'clock tho 
following morning. They must also bo 
kept closed on Sundays. An uninter- 
rupted view of the Interior must be 
glve,n during the hours when the rooms 
are closed. Another mealsure which 
Is now being put Into force is the EJm- 
ployment Agencies .\ct, which compels 
employment agencies to take out 
licences from tlie superintendent of 
provincial police, through the chief 
constable of tho district In which such 
agencies are located, and that every 
licence-holder shall keep records of per- 
sons who have paid fees In connection 
with the hiring of employees and copies 
of all letters received In connection 
with the business. Employers or em- 
ployees may be permitted to Inspect 
these records at any time. .\gencies 
are also prohibited from keeping em- 
ployees as lodgers, and must not 
charge more than the scale of fees 
specified by the authorities. 

Fight With an Owl 

.Tosciih Ituxsell, of Point Grey, has 
n curious tale to tell of a fight he was 
Informally called upon to' unofflclally 
referee recentl.v, the combatants being 
a Siwaah and a big mother owl, and 
tho mill being staged on .loc's pre- 
emption at Nine-mile Point on Seton 
lyakc." He had taken the Indian up 
the lake to clear the place, and as they 
Were landlrig they spied an owl'n nest 
on top of a dry tree stub. The Indian 
Immediately shinned up to secure the 
eggs, hut found instead two owlets. H* 
raised one out of the nest to give Joe 
a view of it when the mother appeared 
on the scene and battle royal began. 
The mother bird perched on the In- 
dian's head, fastened her talons in his 
cheeks and proceeded to get busy with 
both beak and wings. After a moment 
of fierce milling felwasli, mother owl 
anJ little ones came tumbling down 
True to her sex the bird now attacked 
the man's hair and gave him a good 
"roughing" before Joe could get thcni 
to break away. Although not strictly 
according to Queensberry rules .loe 
had to fi-lve the decision to the wise 
old bird, for the Indian was certainly 
the worse for the encounter. 

'Want Xoad TaolUtlee 

Residents of Cumberland city and 
district have inaugurated an active 
canii)aiBii for road Improvements and 
extensions Iri that picturesque section 
of tho Island, the most Important in 
a setles of ruquests recently filed with 
Hon. Mr. Taylor being for a direil road 
connection from Cuniberlund with 
Ktrathcona Park. It Is urged that the 
present road from Union Bay to Cum- 
berland is triangular and that a direct 
connecting road would be a great public 
convenience, lessen, tho Intervening dis- 
tance 'oy five miloa, and also open up 
a considerable area of good agricul- 
tural land. If constructed this road 
would form part of a main trunk road 
to the Crown mountain region and 
would connect with the now Bevan (or 
No. 7) road, comiileted by the govern- 
ment during this season. The Punt- 
ledgo river would then bo bridged and 
the traveler pass on to Brown's rlvir 
and Dove creek, thence on to Section 
81, through the townslte of Headquar- 
ters, and connect with the Kelland 
road, already built eo Block 29, a tijn.

in a cottage wltli all its usual acces- 
sories. The chief actors in, the unlqu i

Cow's Strange Death 
"Malsy." a Holsteln cow of azure 
blood and Icn.glhy pedigree, the prop- 
erty of A. .Mister, of 815 Fourth .\v- 
enue, New Westminster, has come to an 
untimely end by reason of her absorb- 
ing devotion to Fashion. At lea.-Jt such 
Is the conclusion reported by tha gov- 
ernment veterinary who, upon request 
of tho owner, performed a post mortem 
upon the late lamented hossy. His 
verdict as to the cause of death Is 
"the swallowing of four long ladles' 
hatpins — or rather four long ' hutpina 
designed for the security of ladles' 
crowning glories. It Is supposed that 
the cow availed herself of opportunity 
to sample a flower-garden hat and 
found it fatal. There Is no suggestion 
that the hat was occupied at the time. 

Beavers Oanae Flood 
.Mthough the heavsr Is the accepted 
type of Canadian industry, there are 
some good citizens who wish he would 
not display such siirterabundant energy 
In labor. Amonig these are the local 
nutliorlt'es of Lulu Island, where a 
colony of beavers at work by night on 
the North .\rm dyke, betwe.en roads 6 
and 7. were recently directly respon- 
sible for the flooding of a very con- 
siderable area of farm land. The beav- 
ers had so gnawed and weakened the 
timbers that when unusually heavy 
tides prevailed, the dyke proved unable 
to withstand the pressure and broke 
away. A liuge volume of water rushed 
In and flooded the fields. The break 
has now been repaired by Point OreV

tor companies are now actively luvostlgat- 
liig the dlffeient ports of the Pacific coast 
>vUh a view to ereetlnjf elevators tor the 
purpose of taking care of the great quan- 
tities which would come to the coast; as 
soon as the Grand Trunk Pacific and the 
C. N. line were completed and the double 
tracklrg of the C. P. K. was finished. On 
all sides there were enquiries as to ship- 
ping facilities. The difficulties as to lolls 
on the Panama canal he was convinced 
would soon bo settled In a perfectly fair 
manner, lie had been urged to request the 
Dominion government to remonstrate, .but 
had declined.

"I am satlsfii-d,' lie said, "thut Presidont- 
elect WllHoii will deal with the situation Rs 
he has a right to do so." 

In this connection Sir Hlchard add.^d thai 
in BrltLsh ('olumbia the relations hclwccMi 
Canadians and Americans are exceptionnlly 

"Tiny have be>?a better than over since 
the defeat of reciprocity." he said. ■The 
rejection of, reciprocity has standardized 
the Canadian people. The people of the 
I'nltod .States recognize our nationality as 
they did not before." Sir RIcliard was 
enthusiastic In his remarks on the recent 
vlfllt of their Royal Highnesses, the Duke 
and IJuchess of Connaught and Princess 
Patricia to the west. After remarking on 
the extent of the tour he said: 
The Royal Visit 

"The Duke of Connaught unquestionably 
made a lasting Impression on the Canadian 
people and has accomplished much in the 
way of cementing tlic provinces together 
In one undivided confederation. Hfs won- 
derful patience and affability and charm 
of his manner at once endeared him to the 
western Canadians, and the Interest dis- 
played by himself and the duchess In the 
tasks th.< people had undertaken has been 
or groat encouragement to them." 

Sir nichard Mcltrlde spoko briefly on 
Asiatic Immigration, which he described as 
n subject which. In the best Interests of the 
nation should he dealt with at once. He 
hoped to confer tomorrow with federal min- 
isters and make some progress towards a 
conclusion that would be satisfactory to the 
people of the Pacific seaboard. 

"Thn people ot eastern Canada. Avho are 
not obliged to meet the competition of the 
Asiatics, can scarcely realize how vital this 
Issue Is to our people," he said. "We are 
not aptiroaching it In a manner offeDSlve to 
China, Japan or India." 

Sir Rl( hard spoke in enthiiplastlc terms 
of the prosperity of British Columbia, re- 
marking that railway wurk a'tually in

ABERDEEN, Nov. 7.— Without hope 
of escaping death In the race of water

Wh-en picked up two of the men were 
uncon.-'clous. All were taken awny safe-

harbor by the life saving crew ^s said 
■by Westport people to have been one 
of the most heroic things ever attempt- 
ed along the coast. The waves were

larly dangerous. The crew found the 
men famishod and utterl.v rxliaiiatcd 
from their long exposure. 

The boats were owned by Lundriulst,

horsepower heavy duty — ^broke down, 
and about 7 o'clock she sftruck hard on 
a rock about 200 feet from shore. Tho 
hull broke soon, the sea pounding hard, 
l.>reaklng over. We clung to the rock, 
drenched to the akin, cold and hungry, 
and about S o'clock a tugboat came by. 
Tug Passed By. 

"Although the tug was only about 40 
yards away from us when she passed, 
she did not come to our assistance. 
They must have seen us. Wo had a 
IZ-bore shotgun ■ and . we fired several 
shots — the last across the bow of the 
tug — but It never changed its course. 
There were men on deck, and they 
waved a lantern . toward , us several 
times, and then the tug passed on. Our 
disappointment was ke«n, for we did 
not think we vk'ould be able to get off 
the rock. 

A Gallant Effort. 

"When the tugboat passed us we de- 
cided that one would have to try to 
swim ashore to get assistance. The sea 
Was getting up all the dme, the wind 
Increasing, and there was a long roll 
surging at top speed over the rock. 
Angwin being a strong swimmer — an 
old service mKn. formerly on H. M. S. 
Algerlne — It was dectdexl that h^ should 
make the attempt, and he niade a gal- 
lant effort. The sea was too strong, 
he wevor, and he was unable, despite the 
fact that ho Is quite a strong swimmer, 
ti reach shore. He finally gave up the 
effort and worked back to the rock. 
' gl^;:, -An Awfal Night. 

■'thirteen hours, shivering with 
cold, hungry and most of the time 
waist-deep In water, we clung to that 
rock. It was an awful night. When 
morning came the sea began to go down 
and then a small boat put off from 
shore and rescued us." Williams had 
his knee badly hurt, being knocked 
about during the night on the rock, and 
Angwin sustained some injuries to his 
ribs by striking against the rocks when 
making two attempts to swim ashore.

It is just eleven months ago since 
similar practice of the department of 
nericulture in Holland was described 
in these columns. In that country a 
farmer volunteer.^ to allow liis farm 
to be u.sed for experlmeneal purposes. 
He must continue these through the 
wliole of a six years' rotation, and 
carry out the tillage according to In- 
structions. The government pays all 
expenses and supplies seed. 

Every plot Is labellecl clearly with par- 
ticulars of the experiment being tried 
and on Sundays and holidays attracts 

vi-sttOTs- from the" neighbors TrOm miles 

around who compare notes. After har- 
vest statistics are published as to the 
quantity and quality of the produce both 
for eating and for stock raising. 

Under this system in Holland the use 
of chemical fertilizers has spread rap- 
idly and with It the amount of crop 
an acre which the land can be made to 

the highest standard at all times. The 

beat of housing will be provided for 
the cows, and they will be looked after 
carefully to keep them on their feed 
properay and up to a high standard 
of efficiency. IMie beet of dairy stock 
will be utilized only. All cows will 
be tested properly with the tubercu- 
line test, records kept of their yield 
and each Individual cow required to 
bo worthy o( Ijer. place In the dairy 

Proper inllklng sheds wlU be provided, 
the cows groomed regularly and the 
dairy maids supplied with milking uni- 
forms to be worn when milking and 
when milking only. These uniforms 
will be kept spotlessly clean. The mod- 
erh machinery for pasteurizing and 
handling the milk wiU oe installed. It 
wlU be provided to keep the milk at 
the proper temperature and the utmost 
care and precaution will be taken at all 
times from the cow to the consumer. 
The dairy will be the model dairy of

Now Making Kapld Progress — Qallant 

Struggle Against Hotbscblld 


The rise of the Canadian copper and 
nickel industry In the late eighties, and 
the gallant struffgles of the company which 
fought the great Rothschilds combine, 
formed the aub-Ject of an Interesting: address 
at a meetlnjc of the Science Undergraduates 
l^oclety of McGUI university, says The 
Montreal Star. The speaker was Mr. D. H. 
lirowne, of Cobalt, whom 0ean Adams de- 
scribed as "*tho foremost authority of nickel 
nictallurKy In the world." 

Br. Browne went back to the seventies 
and told of how nickel was first found, and 
first used as a mining commodity — of how 
promoters accidentally stumbled upon It 
and of how ultimately the Iron and steel 
Industry of Great Britain became Interested 
sufficiently to send out a special repre- 
sentative In the person of James Ryloy, 
whose report has become world-famous. 
Byley stated that the nickei present In the 
Canadian copper ore was a wonderful 
material, and had great possibilities. 

Then the Canadian company sought a 
market. Keprcscntatlves were made to the 
Canadian and American governmcnt.i. with 
the result that special commissioners were 
appointed to look Into the matter — Sir 
Charles Tupper, for the former and Lieut. 
Buckingham for the latter. Despite the 
skeptical attitude of the great German 
speclail.Hts In the Kiupp firm and the hos- 
tllB attitude of the Hothschllds. Sir Charles 
and Sir John A. MacDonald advised the 
Canadian company to hold to their rights 
and gave them steady support. thereby 
guaranteeing a great Industrv for the fu- 
ture of Canada. The American government 
experimented with the result that the su- 
perior qualities of nickel armor . plating 
were discovered. In I8S1I the American 
government set aside an appropriation of a 
TnllUon dollars for nickel, thereby assuring 
the future of the Canadian Industry. 
Rothschild cut prices to a suicidal figure, 
but didn't phase the Canadian company. 
He wa« forced himself to come to terms or

BstabUah Model Xnatltatlon for 

Dairy Prodnots 

A model dairy, equipped with every- 
thing that modern practical st:Ience 
has decreed as requisite to the sup- 
ply of entirely wholesome milk, is to 
be provided the city of Edmonton by 
Stephen W. Candy, formerly city 
commlesloner, who has Just returned 
from a six months' visit to England, 
says The Bdmonton Journal. Situat- 
ed on a half-section of land adjoining 
the proposed new city limits, on the 
south Bide, the dairy will have 100 
cows, housed and cared for In the 
most modern and up-to-date manner 
And milked night and morning by 

Dairymaids have outstripped all 
mere men milkers and milking 
machines by their efficiency, and Mr. 
Candy proposes to employ such help 
on his dairy. He intends to bring 
these dairymaids from Bngland. In 
the old country educated girls are at- 
tendlniT technical schools, studying 
dairying methods and the science of 
dairying, than flndtity ready -amploy- 
ment aa mllkera and as dairy help.

The Smpreas Theatre — A well bal- 
anced bill with enough variety to suit 
the moat hypercritical of vaudevlllo- 
goers is offered at the Empress theatrn 
this week. It is headed by the Three 
.Spa Brothers, a trio of gymnasts, who 
offer some of th« best efforts In this 
line seen here for some time. Some of 
the more daring feats Include the 
mounting of ladders swaying on a bal- 
ancing board with one performer bal- 
ancing the other, h«ad to head. Mr. 
George Garden offers a treat to lov«rs 
of Instrumental music, especially the 
xylophone. He is a master of that In- 
strument, and Includes in his repertoire 
both operatic numbers and lighter airs. 
Many of the medleys he offers bring 
forth outbursts of applause. The Har- 
mony Belles and Beaux, four singers, 
two women and two men, contribute an 
artistic singing number which pleases 
greatly. They have a good r^epertoiro 
varying lighter numbers with classical 
and semi-classical efforts, and the 
mixed quartette wins much applause. A 
comedy number which occasions much 
laughter. Is that of Van and Carrie 
Avery, who present a laughable sketch 
cntitle<l "The Night Porter." Van 
Avery, a one-time minstrel man, appears 
in the blackface role of, Rastus, the por- 
ter, and his partner does some good 
Impcrsation work. Collier and , De 
Walde, a couple of expert roller skat-ers 
do some trick and fancy skating that 
brings forth much applause. 

Majestic Theatre: "The Poacher's 
Pardon." This i« the finest production 
ever made in England by an American 
company. Dora, the gamek<;eper's 
daughter, is In lo'v* with the poacher, 
whom ber father is hunting down. 
Picturesque locations in rural England 
compose the background for this in- 
tensely dramatic story. "The One She 
Loved," Blograph feature. A lovely 
picture and a most desirable production. 
"Rescue, Care and Education of Blind 
Babies." This is unquestionably a rare 
film. The film shows just what the 
titl-e indicates, and. in the cours<?. of the 
picture, there are moments of deep 
pathos — and sharper perhaps than would 
Vie drawn out by the best drama of /lie 
month. It makes ft strong appeal to 
the sympathies of intelligent men and 
women. "London Anlmate<l .lournal" Is 
a splendid number. "Four Days a 
Widow." Hubby takes a "buslneiss trip" 
Wlfey gets wise and takes a pleasure 
trip. He «ets the worst of It. She g>et8 
him just where sh« wants him. This 
is an up-to-date comedy for up-to-date 
people, and will be shown at the Ma- 
jestic today and tomorrow. 

Crystal Theatre — A complete change 
of pictures today with "The Combination 
of The Safe," as the feature, by the 
Kalem Company. This Is one of those 
strong dramas that appeals to every 
man, woman and child. "A Tennesse 
Love Story" Is e pretty Sellg drama laid 
among the mountains of that wild and 
picturesque country; "Honors Divided" 
Is a ClnwB drama full of the European 
atmosphere; "His Lords'hlp the Valet" 
Is a Vltagraph comedy which Is more 
than funny. It Is a liiugh from the 
start. The vaudeville changed y-ester- 
day. Miss Faucott is a distinguished 
English Monoloigiet and character Im- 
personator. Her renditions are very 
pleasing. Sather and Sweeney made a 
great hit yesterday with their comedy 
talking harmony, singing and yodeling 
act. Their Jokes are good n.nd up-to- 
date, whll« their singing la above the 
average. • 

A government trail is being out 
through the low pass between the head 
of Nine-Mile creeic and the south fork 
of Kelly ereeit, In the West Kootenay 
district. This will give a «hort route 
from this valley to Frultvale, and the 
trail will, a« conditions develop, be eon- 
verted into a wagon road.

In support of her theory that the 
surroundings of e slnsrer make all the 
difference In the world, Madame Gad- 
ski told of her recent experience In 
Toronto. -On her previous visits to 
tiiiit city .she had sunff In Maspey hall, 
which was. until recently, about as 
Rood an auditorium : as there was in 
Canada, but this year she .sans In the 
new Arena, to an audience of 7,000 peo- 
plt^. and, good thouRh the Massey hall 
was, the Arena was twice as pood. 
Orowth of Musical Cnltars. 

Madame, who Is know;n in Germany, 
de.spltg her German birth, as the Amer- 
ican artiste. Is an enthusiast upon the 
growth of musical culture in America, 
in which she includes Canada. 

"It Is wonderful," she said, "as one 
visits the outposts of this continent to 
see how many really cultured people 

• there are, people who are ready and 
anxious to hear and appreciate Rood 
music. It Seems to nie that hand In 
liand with your industrial development 
there is an artistic development whicli 
is hot on -the surface, but which comes 
to the sUrfa.Ce when opportunity of- 

"Tt has been well said that music 
knows no limits of lanKuaRe. That i.s 
as true today as It was when the state- 
ment was first made. It does not mat- 
ter whether I am in New York city 
slntrlniT at the Metropolitan opera 
liouse (Where I will return at Christ- 
ma O, or whether I am thousands of 

mill's *way, there Is the same cosmo- 
politanism of music everywhere. Kvrii 
in the sections which might be sup- 
posed tp be given tip altoKether to 
commercialism, or even to cattle rala- 
inp, there Is always the savinp rem- 
ii.'\ii(. who form the basis of poi>uIar 
.sfiiiimcnt and create public opinion. 
It matters not whether I sing In Ger- 
man, In Italian, In French, or In Eng- 
lish, the result Is the same. The mu- 
."le captivates and eliminates all racial 
and language barriers. It is the great 
leveller of prejudice and the great uiii- 
flcr of the world." 

A rrlend of Aspirants. 

Maflame Gadski, wlio commenced to 
sing wlion eight years of age, is now 
llie acknowledged Icadn nf the profes- 
sion on this continent, has the unique 
distinction of having learned to sing 
in Italian and in French in Amertca. 
When she loft Germany first she knew 
only German, but, with her, as witli 
lier audiences, music solved all linguis- 
tic problems and now she ran -sing 
equally widl In four language."!. 

"One. thing I «m proud of," she aaid, 
"and that Is that I am able to do some- 
thing for the encouragement of the 
nuisical talent nf tlil.s continent. When- 
ever I can, I always give a helping 
hand to the native composer, and I feel 
that I linve shown this when I have 
taken into my repertoire the songs 
of )our beautiful composer, Miss 
Hrflnscombe, of Toronto. It helps a 
coniposer materially to have hia or her 'sung in public, and It Is my 
I)roud boaftt that 1 have never refused 
to examine and test the work of any 
man or woman, even If they have never 
before been heard of. 

"AVIiile It is tryijjg to spend so much 
time on the trains and in travel as 
T have to do, I find consolation In the 
knowledge I am getting of this great 
continent, and In the real progress 
which la being made In matters artis- 
tic, nut I still look \ipon Germany as 
my homo, and I look forward to my 
annual visit there each spring with as 
much plea.«ure as ever I did. America 
Is a great country; but It Is not home. 
Tliere Is no place like home, and T am 
now building a new home In Berlin 
In which 1 hope to have room to treas- 
ure all the souvenirs of my American 
travels, and I can assure you that chief 
among them will be my aouvenlrs of

is offset by our claim checks. Our drivers check 
your baggage at your residence. You present the 
claim check to the baggage master — show your

rejoicing. If we cannot attend to your order we

MAIL Subscribers 
are requested to 
make all remittances 
direct to— 

The Daily Colonist 


Caution ! 

It has been brought to our at- 
tention that many persons who 
mail The Colonist to friends 'Hi 
abroad put only a one cent stamp 
on the wrapper, the general im- 
pression being that one cent will 
pay the postage on a newspaper 
irrespective of its weight. This 

is a mistake. The ordinary daily 
issue of The Colonist requires 
two cents postage, and the Sun- 
day edition three cents. News- 
papers mailed with the postage in- 
sufficiently paid are not sent out 
by the Postoffice. 


ordering change of 
address should be par- 
ticular to give both 
new and old address
